I'm loving the matchbox swaps, and I also love making tiny books, so here's a swap to combine two of my favorite things!
We will have one partner each and will decorate a small (32 match size) matchbox and make a tiny handmade book to fit inside it. You can check your partner's profiles for themes, or make them as you desire.
The book can be made with any bookmaking technique you like, but must have a cover and at least 8 pages. It can be blank, like a mini journal, with some decoration on the pages, or can be a story following the decoration theme.
One idea is to make an accordion-pleat book using the bottom of the box as the back cover and a cover with a loop or button on it to pull it out of the box for reading, the outer part of the box being a slipcase.
I'm putting plenty of time between sign up and mailing date (over a month) so you can start creating your book and apply a personal theme once you get your partner.
It's INTERNATIONAL, so make the best use of your time to allow for international mail if you get a partner overseas.
No no-sends or ratings under 4.8 are allowed. Newbies must write me before the sign-up deadline to be considered, anyone who signs up just before the deadline with a lower rating or no rating without writing me well ahead will be dropped.
Communication within the swap comments and with your partners is highly recommended for all participants, it makes for a much more pleasant swap environment when we all treat each other with care!
